Do You Like McDonald’s New "Mad Men"-Inspired Uniforms?
We’re not the only ones obsessed with the life (and the wardrobe) of Don Draper and the rest of the Mad Men crew. McDonald’s is hopping on the 60’s fashion trend with their Mad Men-inspired uniforms.
The fast food restaurant chain hired designer Wayne Hemingway to help update the uniforms of United Kingdom McDonalds employees.
“There’s just a little bit of Mad Men,” Hemingway told the Telegraph, “harking back to a day of really classy air travel.”
The new duds include pencil skirts and piped button downs with Peter Pan collars for women, and skinny ties for men, all fashioned in mustard, gherkin green and light plaid. “We wanted classic design. A narrow tie will always be fashionable,” Hemingway said. “There is a very subtle hint to the mod look, which has never gone out of fashion.”
Now, if only we could get Jon Hamm to serve us our fries.

Where are the hats? I don't like or want hair in my food thanks. Also , ties? Where's your health and safety savvy? Fried tie will be on the menu soon then will it? 99p special I hope? And you're really going to subject your female staff to sexual abuse by drunken louts when they are clearing the dining area by having them wear skirts? Glad I don't work for McDonalds.
